Sprite Font Generator - v3

Discussion of tools and resources for game developers

Post » Wed Apr 23, 2014 4:32 pm

@Paradox Do you mean increasing the opacity? Because anti-aliasing creates more pixels than aliased fonts, so the result would look like a solid shadow, or at least if I'm thinking correctly.

And actually, using v2 I added the aliased font over the exported anti-aliased font, and created quite a professional-looking pixelated spritefont. :3

In Photoshop if you convert to grayscale mode, them convert to Bitmap, it will let you set the threshold at what light shades turn white and what dark shades turn black. It defaults to 50%.

I'm having trouble trying to set the spacing for the Double Quotes: "
Basically because the JSON exported doesn't contain it, and I can't set it separately (if I try to go """ I get an error)... How do I do that?

It's in there. The problem is you have to escape the double-quotes with another double-quotes! You need """" (four double-quotes) to make it work.

@blackhornet, GYFM2 is awesome, but I'm having a problem with the character set it produces in the text file - some of the digits appear to be incorrect. I've not had this problem before on my previous computer (I'm using a relatively new computer) and the error happens on normal system fonts (like Arial and Time New Roman) as well as custom fonts from the web. I've attached an example of the Arial font .png.

Here are links to the text and png files:

text file

png file

Code: Select all
Character set: ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789.,;:?!-_~#"'&()[]|`\[email protected]+=*$£€<>%


As you can see, the following characters are included at the end of the character set text but don't appear in the png:
Code: Select all
€


Also, the "€" is missing....

Any advice on what's going wrong would be very much appreciated.
